****Please be advised that the City has turned off the water at the Pumphouse/Tailrace in order to do maintenance to the Pumphouse. We are unsure of the exact date that the water will be turned back on but have been told it will be in Spring, 2013. ORR will not be offering any refunds for club membership if the water is off for a longer period of time. The club will continue to run river runs and summer camps and other programs will move to other locations if possible.****
The ORR puts substantial financial and volunteer resources into maintaining the Pumphouse/Tailrace course. We have a policy that all individuals or companies running courses at the facility, and charging for those courses, remits 10% of their course revenues to the ORR. In addition, it is recommended that course instructors be club members.
